God Said It, That Settles It

Encouragement for your daily walk with God 

You’ve probably seen the bumper sticker that says, “God said it; I believe it; and that settles it!” I like it for it’s bold statement, but with all due respect, it isn’t correct. It should simply say, “God said it and that settles it!”

The truth of God’s Word doesn’t depend on anything but itself for truthfulness. Can I get a witness? It doesn’t matter how we think or feel about it, God’s Word is God’s Word. It just is!

So, what does that mean for you and me? I can answer that with a little song I learned in Sunday School many years ago:

Every promise in the Book is mine
Every chapter, every verse, every line
All the blessings of His love divine
Every promise in the Book is mine

In adult language, it means every chapter, every verse, every line, every word is inspired by God and deserving of our attention. Sure, there are verses more inspiring than others, but they are all equally inspired.

The entire Word of God is fixed in heaven and is as meaningful to your life as it was to those who read it thousands of years ago. That’s why, as a Christ follower, we do not neglect the Word. Dig in. Enjoy its truth as a breath of fresh air. Relish its instructions. It is God’s gift —His very words — to you! 

The Bible is as relevant today as the day it was written. Open it daily and let the Word of God guide your life.

Forever, O LORD, Your word is settled in heaven. Psalm 119.89
